The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

We are starting a whole school project. I am looking to have a space where teachers involved in the project can discuss ideas, share resources and collaborate using a user-friendly interface. I am thinking a wiki along the lines of wikispaces or pbworks. If anyone has any comments or suggestions they could offer I would be most welcome.


Many thanks...

My last professional development collaboration was begun on a Google doc and shifted to a wikispace. All things considered, I think some sort of combination is the best solution. Wikispaces are awesome platforms but Google docs allow for a more powerful constructive creation. Like so many alternatives, you can have the best of both worlds. Google Docs embed nicely in wikispaces.
Thank you Alan, I like the idea of embedding google docs in Wikispaces. However, I am also looking at setting up a Ning as the project we are working on is going to grow and will have numerous levels/ areas... Any suggestions?
I might recommend I have had the occasional problem with it but it has many features I like better than Ning.


Edmodo may serve your purpose.  If all goes well the teachers will see the benefits of using this tool in their classroom. Like Alan I think Google docs with its new Discussion addition could also be a plus for you.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
